It's more likely that they need some food aid. They'll talk for a bit then get back to being North Korea. It's similar to what used to happen under Lee Myung-bak and Kim Jong-il.

Apart from Kim Jong-un being possibly ill.

But then again the party will find a new man before it turns to the South. The Workers' Party WPK would stand to lose everything if re-unification happened and as they are the entrenched elite expect them to resist re-unification even if Kim Jong-un is out of the picture.

And then there is China.

China is very unlikely to want to see a virtual American satellite start sharing it's border.

Wouldn't life get real interesting here if it did happen though? To say you were in Korea when that happened.

Yet I agree with Ska, highly unlikely.

aid to north korea is bare jokes, why would you relieve the pressure on that country ... starve them into submission since that is what it will probably take.

Lot's of South Koreans have family in North Korea. They are not as keen on starving innocent people who's only crime was to be unlucky enough to have an awful government.

And anyway starving them doesn't work the WPK continue to eat well and the people eat what they can even grass.

aid perpetuates corrupt regimes by relieving the pressure on them.

if mass starvation makes no difference to the regime, why are they asking south korea for assistance?

They aren't yet. It's just what I think they will do based on when it has happened before.

And it might not make a difference to the regime. But refusing aid is still not a solid argument for killing millions of people from malnutrition.

Especially when so many Koreans share family ties with those on the other side of the DMZ. People in South Korea see North Koreans and themselves as Koreans they view the partition of the country as an artificial thing.

Why not? It works in the United States and there are about 350 ~ million people.
If a unified Korea will be about 80 ~ million people, why do not work?

Whut? The Americans currently hold operational control of the South's armed forces!

I think China will be against re-unification and would block any attempt from the South to absorb the North peacefully, democratically or militarily.

But I think America will be against the North doing the same.

Wait. I think I'm conversing with someone who bases his knowledge of Korea on a video game >.<

Elroi, a democratic republic blends features of democracy and Republicanism to make a system that either runs like a dream or gets horribly abused corrupted. USA's electoral college system is am example of corruption/abuse.

Well the optimism has probably gone now. The Koreas have been back at shooting at each other lately ...

Also Kim has been seen in public again. But only still photos no video shots.

A unified Korea in this economic climate would destroy stability in the region, there's not a major power in the world that's ready or willing to deal with such a situation.

Anyone who's studied the German unification will get what I'm aiming at, with Korea it will be 10x worse because unlike North Korea, East Germany was getting hundreds of millions of dollars in aid each year from the BRD (West Germany) and the USA before it was unified (and it was still chaos).

The US can barely pay their own police and security forces, I wonder how they'd help South Korea cope with the unification process. South Korea could ask China I guess, if they're willing to sell their soul in the process. Well, China is the rising power, might be worth greasing their relationship a bit, I don't see the US making a comeback anytime soon...

X, sure putting more pressure on North Korea might help the regime to collapse, but they might risk a last pitch and invade South Korea. I mean, if you think that's a good idea, at least practice what you preach and fight on the front line with our Korean brothers. I'll light a candle for you when you get fragged by your comrades on the way to battle.
